Hi Jose,

1. Open the Bluetooth File Transfer Wizard (Start->All Programs->Accessories).

2. Select Next

3. Click "Receive a File" then Next

4. Send a file with your device

Hi Kristina,

thanks for this useful tip. I could not even find it in the Vista Help.

Can you explain why I always have to go through the wizard to enable the file transfer service

I would expect that I could always send a file from my mobile phone to my PC without actually starting the wizard.

If I do not start the wizard then my mobile phone reports something like" device does not offer any useable servies" .

Thanks, -Eric
